Brexit news has been nonstop: Here's a list to get you up to speed


Britain's exit from the European Union has sparked absolute pandemonium in the U.K., Europe and across the world.

We at BringMeTheNews are struggling to think of the last time so much happened in such a short period of time (we're talking hours) so we've put together a list of everything that's happened since about 10 p.m. last night:

1. The United Kingdom votes to exit the European Union by a vote of 52 percent to 48 percent.

2. The pound, which at one point on Thursday was worth $1.50, crashes to a low of $1.32, before recovering slightly.


3. As a result, France overtakes the U.K. as the world's fifth largest economy.

4. British Prime Minister David Cameron announces he is resigning and will step down in October. Boris Johnson is installed as favorite to take over.


5. Eurosceptic parties in France, Italy and the Netherlands make calls for their own countries to leave the European Union.

6. The Japanese stock market – which was open when the result filtered in – plunged upon news of a "Leave vote," with German, French and British stock markets following shortly after.

7. The U.S. Dow Jones Industrial dropped 500 points when it opened Friday morning, the lowest drop seen in 10 months, though it has regained a little bit of ground since then.

8. This is happening...


9. The Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon says her country – which voted to "Remain" – wants to hold another Independence referendum to secede from the U.K.

10. Irish Republican party Sinn Fein calls for the reunification of the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland.

11. Spain has called for dual sovereignty of the British territory of Gibraltar, which borders Spain and which voted overwhelmingly to "Remain."

12. The Federal Reserve says it is "prepared to take action" to calm global financial markets. Any U.S. interest rate hike is likely to be delayed.


13. Mexico announces a $1.65 billion budget cut to cope with the fallout of the Brexit.

14. President Obama says the special relationship between U.S.-U.K. will "endure" despite supporting the "Remain" camp.

15. Donald Trump – who is visiting his golf course in Scotland – called it a "great thing" that the U.K. people have "taken back their country." Hillary Clinton says the Brexit stresses the need for "calm, steady, experienced leadership."
